Arthur Ferguson, 85, went to his heavenly home peacefully March 3, 2024. Art was a native Arizonan, born in Wikieup, AZ.  Art served on the USS Hollister, a Gearing-class destroyer of the United States Navy, from 1955-1957 before transferring to the reserves.

Art was a member of the Operating Engineers Local 428. After taking an early retirement he pursued self-employment. Starting his own excavation business, Ferguson Trucking in addition Art and Charlene developed Rancho Verde RV Park that continues to operate today. He enjoyed raising his family along with hunting, fishing, and socializing on his back porch with family, friends, and neighbors. Art served and assisted with the Verde Ditch Committee and worked on many projects in and for Yavapai County.

If you were a friend of Art’s, you knew of his loyalty and commitment to that friendship. He was a generous man to a fault. If you needed anything, all you had to do was ask and he would give you whatever he could, even if you didn't ask.

We will miss him always.
